There are some debts you can’t repay.

Josh Walker is loyal, reckless, and every girl’s dream. But he only has eyes for December Howard, the girl he's craved since his high school hockey days. Together they have survived grief, the military, distance, and time as they’ve fought for stolen weekends between his post at Ft. Rucker and her college at Vanderbilt. Now that Josh is a medevac pilot and Ember is headed toward graduation, they’re moving on—and in—together.

Ember never wanted the Army life, but loving Josh means accepting whatever the army dictates—even when that means saying goodbye as Josh heads to Afghanistan, a country that nearly killed him once before and that took her father. But filling their last days together with love, passion, and plans for their future doesn’t temper Ember’s fear, and if there’s one thing she’s learned from her father’s death, it’s that there are some obstacles even love can’t conquer.

Flight school is over.
This is war.

Kassiah: Remember when I said that I thought I might love Grayson a little more than Josh (and Jagger)? Well, I take it back. I love them all, damnit! but I just…I want to cry just typing out this review. I love this book so much. I love Josh so much. I love this whole series so much. I didn’t know that we were going to get another book about Josh and Ember, even though I started this series after all four books were out. And thank rob for that because as much as they slayed me, and I mean I feel it down to the marrow of my bones, I don’t know what I would have done if I would have had to wait between each one. They’re all standalone, even this one, but you should read them all, right now.

So. Hallowed Ground takes place a couple of years after Full Measures. Josh is getting deployed and if you remember from Full Measures, Ember lost her father in a war and wasn’t a fan that Josh was a soldier. That’s putting it mildly. You know, I really loved Ember in this book. She wasn’t whiny or defeated like I thought she might be here. She was strong and she refused to give up. I loved Josh, too, but he drove me crazy in some parts. I loved that we got to be with Jagger and Paisley and Grayson (♥) and Sam here, too.

This book is dripping with angst and is definitely an emotional roller coaster. But it’s also sweet and realistic and close to my heart. It’s a must-read, and I’m anxious to see what’s next for Yarros.
